By Ray Hamill — College of the Redwoods has officially listed Friday night’s doubleheader of basketball playoff games as a sellout, although 40 of the 800 tickets remain available and will go on sale early on Thursday.
The games essentially sold out in just a few hours after going on sale at noon on Wednesday.
This year is the first time ever both of the schools basketball teams were crowned conference champions in the same year, and the first time they will both play at home on the same night to open the playoffs.
The remaining few tickets can be purchased by calling the Redwoods PE office at (707) 476-4213 at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, but the school will not be taking any calls prior to then.
CR Athletic Director Bob Brown described the atmosphere within the athletics department on Wednesday as “special” and “memorable” with hundreds of fans lining up to purchase tickets for the historic night.
Both games will be streamed live through the school’s Facebook pages, as well as broadcast live locally on the radio, with broadcast details to follow.
